La interpretación de Fiennes es muy buena y la dirección logra que uno vaya involucrándose cada vez más con el personaje. Aunque el ritmo del relato puede exasperar por su lentitud, se asocia al farragoso trabaj... read more

Before going a little more mainstream and finding a new muse in Viggo Mortensen, David Cronenberg made this very bleak feature. Honestly, it has been a while since I saw this one and I should definitely re-watch it whenever I get the opportunity. The point is that, like most of the movies directed by David Cronenberg, it is not very pleasant to watch, it is very dark and bleak but there was defini... read more

Moviewatcher122's 2016 Film Diary: September (22 movies items)

"September 25 "Clothes maketh the man; and the less there is of the man, the more the need of the clothes." I had this on DVD for ages, so I decided to finally watch it since I felt like watching a non-horror Cronenberg movie. It is a very interesting character study of a mentally disturbed guy and Ralph Fiennes sells this character very well. As interesting and different this movie was, I can't say I completely understood it and there was something missing for me to consider it a great movie"
